    Our family took this tour on our first day in St Petersburg. It was a great introduction to the city, perfect to do at the beginning of your journey. Our sightseeing tour with Dina was excellent. She is very friendly and knowledgeable. In addition to interesting stories about the city, she told us many useful things, for example, where to go and how to use the metro system.
